Ceiling of Shopping Center collapsed in Doha - 18 injured

It happened in Ramez Shopping Center . A part of the ceiling collapsed leaving 18 people injured .  The building on the Salwa road was an old one . Some others shops were forced to shut down as electricity was cut in the area .

 This is not the first ceiling collapse in shopping centres in Qatar . As far as I remember in the last decade there was a false- ceiling collapse in the Landmark  and in the City Center as well . These were new buildings  and the quality of the  work  must have been poor . This is the first time I hear about old building collapse in Doha .

 Similar accident happened in Doha  in 2015  when a baby was hurt  .

 Here is the Ministry of Interior's tweet about the accident

summer festival 2015 - my experience

 After  Summer Festival 2014  when  there was a great Fun City set up in  Doha Exhibition Center I visited the facility with great expectations .Last year theme was winter - slides and snow villages , ski lessons and many more original and memorable  games . Like the school of acrobats where kids learnt about  the art of jumping from real acrobats - they were allowed to swing on the trapeze  and juggle with balls .. Well , this year there was the old ,tired ,boring games  . Nothing original . NO theme .Just very loud music , flashing lights and minimum 15 year old rides .It was rather sad , not fun at all . My kids played a bit on the inflatable slides - then  a session on the trampoline ... they were watching these " skill games "  where one has to throw a ring or a ball into a bucket or bottle neck... sadly ,they looked like a daytime robbery rather than fun games  - we were watching them for about 20 minutes and nobody managed to do them ... All in all - the fun city was a step back  compared to last year . Is it only me who thinks that our kids deserve more ?
